Engagement season is coming! Get ready at Silver Spring Jewelry

Thanksgiving is just three days away, and you know what that marks the beginning of…

Engagement season.

That’s right, it’s officially the time of year to tell that special someone you want to be with them forever and ever. And that’s the easy part. The hard part is picking out the perfect piece of jewelry to show them just how much you love them. We’re talking about engagement rings. Custom engagement rings, to be exact.

Looking at ring after ring (after ring) gets old, fast. But Silver Spring Jewelry has a few different, dare we say fun, ways to make sure your significant other gets the ring of their dreams.

Let’s say you love the stone on one ring, but the band on another. Using a software called CounterSketch, your jeweler can help take your favorite aspects of several pieces of jewelry and put them together to make the perfect ring. The 3D technology means you get to see what the finished product will look like from every angle, and the customizability of every piece means your personal touch is evident in every detail. The process is super simple and is done in-person at the Silver Spring Jewelry White Oak location. You can even try it out on their website! Play around with specific stone colors, sizes and band styles and you’ll see for yourself the endless possibilities.

If you’re the creative type who loves design, or you have something very specific in mind when it comes to your engagement ring, Matrix will soon be your best friend. No, not Keanu’s version; this is another jewelry design software that your Silver Spring jeweler is familiar with. The main difference between CounterSketch and Matrix is that CounterSketch begins with a design you can then customize. Matrix allows you to start completely from scratch with your custom jewelry. Have an idea, but no clue how to bring it to life? Your jeweler is here to help. With 3D technology and true-to-life renderings, you’ll be able to design exactly what you have pictured in your head. Rings designed with Matrix take a little bit longer (for obvious reasons), so if you’re thinking of getting down on one knee this winter, be sure to give yourself a few weeks to get the ring ready.

No matter which route you go, you’re sure to have a lucky ring recipient on your hands. It’s also worth noting that both of these software programs can be used for any type of jewelry. We’re sure your mom, sister, dad, brother, mailman, teacher and dog walker would all be happy with a custom piece of jewelry this holiday season. Just saying.
